From the back cover---
This is a very personal and uproarious account of Eileen and Doug's 30 day journey to the Minas Basin. You'll likely find that this fascinating, soulsearching and heartwarming adventure with its crazy cast of characters is unlike any cruising story or travel memior you'll ever read. It's kind of like Erma Bombeck meets Herman Melville.
"Each day's riotous occurrences are entered in Beaver's thought-provoking log, now preserved for posterity, via her book. Sailor or not, adventurer or armchair dreamer . . .
Sailing the Big Flush is one entertaining read." --Ruth Leubecker Editor and Columnists Machias Valley News Observer and former: editor of the Daily Record in Baltimore and Executive Editor of the Annapolis Post, Maryland.
From the introduction: "One of the great small boat adventures of our time, an epic voyage in exotic and rarely-traveled waters that happen to be in the very back yard of some of the northeast's most well-known cruising grounds . . . the powerful and rhythmic tides of the Bay of Fundy are the background music over which Eileen Beaver tells her story "
